Headline acts included Britpop stars Dodgy, Ashes, husband and wife acoustic duo Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou, as well as DJs Adam White, Adam Dowling and Craig C.

The line-up followed a packed-out opening gig at St Mary’s Church on FridayJuly 26, by Charlatan’s frontman Tim Burgess.

Families enjoyed picnics in the park, made amazing large-scale sculptures out of recycled waste, shopped at trade stands and made full use of the amusement rides on the site.

Ashford Borough Council organiser Chris Dixon said: “Create 2013 has been phenomenal, the best ever.

“I am delighted by what we have achieved and absolutely stoked by the positive feedback received.

“I am going to stick my neck out and say, this could be a turning point for the festival, so keep a look-out on Create’s website and let’s now see what we can do for 2014, and 2015, our 20th year.”
